The EMMETT Technique is a unique form of body therapy. It involves the application of light finger pressure at specific points, referred to as 'Emmett points'. They are not the same as traditional trigger points or acupressure points or any other points described in any other therapy.
The pressure required to stimulate the EMMETT points does not need to be firm or painful. 'No pain no gain' has no place in EMMETT Technique philosophy, which is part of why it's great for animals!
It includes applying the right amount of pressure, in the right direction, for the right amount of time.
